Goldman Sachs is pulling forward its oil forecast following OPEC's meeting last week as well as the Georgia run-off elections, both of which the firm said will help neutralize near-term risks.

Goldman now sees Brent hitting $65 per barrel by this summer, ahead of prior forecasts for the contract to reach that level by the end of the year.
